Mystery Men is about a group of misfit up-and-coming wannabe heroes who, when a real superhero-whose a bit of a louse-goes missing shortly after the release of a master villain-have to try to band together and rise to the occasion despite their lack of formal training, mediocre abilities and struggle to believe in themselves! Can spoon-throwing, toxic farts, faulty invisibility, a possessed bowling ball-like sphere, a shovel, unbridled rage and being mysterious help?! These guys (and one woman) think so, and there's the show-silly powers and wacky bad-guys collide as the fate of the city they live in hangs in the balance. This should have been funnier, and could have been, but it remains OK and spoofs a great many superhero tropes! A great cast tries hard, but the writing and direction just needed some more attention.

Continuity mistake: When the Mystery Men smash their "Magnetic" Herkimer bus through Casanova's Castle's main gate you can see a number of the lights mounted to the front of the bus are smashed, however, in the next couple of front on shots, you can see that all lights are working and intact.
